Great printer, but you pay 10X the printer in ink costs

  • Excerpt: I received this printer for free (after mail-in rebate) with the purchase of my MacBook from the Apple store.  It scans & prints great.  The problem is that it uses SO MUCH ink.  I rarely, rarely print anything in color, and when I do, it's a color copy of a photo.  I was having to replace the ink cartridge (for colors like magenta) all the time. And, it won't let me do anything, like scan, if ink is out.

Canon MP980 Has Amazing Picture Quality

  • Excerpt: I purchased the MP980 (the older model of the MP990) about two and a half years ago from Amazon. Before purchasing this printer I researched printers like crazy. I finally decided on this one for a few reasons; the most important being that it had copying, scanning, and printing without fax (who uses a fax machine anymore). When I first received it, I was surprised by how large the printer was. Before purchasing make sure you have space on your desk for this behemoth.

Superb picture quality

  • Excerpt: The Canon Pixma MP980 is an excellent printer for all your printing needs. The MP980 prints pictures with superior quality. The range of colors from vibrant reds to deep blues and soft yellows is excellent. The Mp 980 is a three in one printer. The color copier has outstanding resolution that can pick up even the slightest detail or change in corol. I was also shocked by the scanner. I usuall cannot stand using scanners but the MP980 is excellent.

"Would have been good, hadn't Canon made it useless."

  • Pros: Great feature set. OK build quality. OK software.
  • Cons: The showstopper is its insane ink usage. You could just as well buy a full set of ink cartridges and throw them directly in the garbage, instead of bothering with installing them in the printer first. Repeat ad nauseam.

"Hard to print black and white versions of color docs."

  • Pros: Nice looking box
  • Cons: The MX 870 is not even a match for my 15 year old HP 722 in print quality and certainly not a match in ease of use.

"This printer sucks!!! Worst product ever!"

  • Pros: There are no pros - I have spent 4-5 times more on ink than I did for the printer! I have never been able to link it wirelessly even with my laptop sitting on top of the printer!!! It tells me that the connection is too far away! Scanning and adding do
  • Cons: The worst part is that I have even gone through a full 500 pack of paper since I've owned this printer. The warranty is out, I don't use it enough to have done anything about it. But, I've talked with someone at a basic electronics store and they inform

"Average, ink usage excessive and grayscale uses colors."

rem16, CNET
10 January 2011
  • Pros: It prints decent photos and average text, duplexes and is wireless.
  • Cons: 3 color photos and then only grayscale. In 6 months use I've replaced all cartridges once, need to install magenta and gray is half gone. Only print 5-10 pages per week and only grayscale since 1st ink replacement. Want a free printer, take mine!
